Tuition: $315.00 | Members/Seniors (65+): $300.00

Acrylics can mimic all paint mediums in a less toxic way. Discover how to layer and develop a painting's surface; since acrylics work equally well together, there are fewer rules regarding how a painting's depth can be built. To get the most from the variety of acrylic mediums, fool-proof and low-tech methods will cover how to simulate encaustic, epoxy, lacquer, and open painting like oil. The class will also include Xerox transfer, collage paint skins and crackle effects. Includes many materials for experimentation; materials will be discussed the first class. No previous painting experience required, but some art experience expected. No class Mar 5.

 6094 | Layers: Encaustic Mixed Media Methods and Materials

Level: Intermediate/Advanced | Instructor: Michelle Belto
Dates: Fri - Sun, 3/15/2019 to 3/17/2019 | 10:00 AM- 4:00 PM
Studio: Droste Design Studio | Building: Santikos Building
Tuition: $325.00 | Members/Seniors (65+): $310.00

The versatility of encaustic paint invites the use of mixed media materials and methods, while the natural luminosity and transparency of the paint allows for complex multi-layered work that can speak of time and memory. Going beyond simple collage in wax, this workshop is designed to assist students in creating intricate and personally significant paintings, where mixed media choices as material and application become intuitive. This workshop explores the myriad methods that can be used to create complexity, add interest and texture, and design with mystery and drama. Correct use, and mixing of media with wax, along with tips and suggestions for display and shipping will be discussed. The workshop is co-sponsored by R&F Paints.
